The opening shots that began a devastating day on Parliament Hill killed a Hamilton reservist who dreamed of being a full-time soldier and deprived his kindergarten-aged son of his father.

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, was shot while on honorary guard at the National War Memorial. Ottawa Police announced hours after the shooting that the soldier shot at the memorial had died.

Social media accounts and online photos paint a picture of Cirillo as a loving father to his young son, an animal lover and a fitness buff.

The staff at Acadia will be wearing poppies and/or wearing red tomorrow for solidarity and to remember Corporal Nathan Cirillo, a fellow Canadian and animal lover. We encourage all our clients to do the same.

Moreover, Dr.Wickstrom will be donating 10% of tomorrow’s proceeds to Corporal Nathan Cirillo’s son’s education fund.
